Ronnie and Louann, Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the death of Buddy. I only got to meet him one time -- at a Matherne's wine dinner, but I remember how much fun we all had. Please know you and the rest of the Bombet family are in my thoughts & prayers.

From over here in Ireland and UK, we extend our heartfelt condolences to the entire Bombet Family, Friends and Associates. We first met Buddy at the 1999 Super Conference in NOLA, he pursuaded me to joing NALI, for that alone, I am ever grateful. We now celebrate a life well-lived. RIP Buddy
